President Obama’s panel of independent experts reviewing the NSA spy network may not be so independent. A new report says the panel has been working hand in hand with Director of National Intelligence. According to the report they work in DNI offices and interview requests and press statements are all coordinated through the Agency. The panel is even allowed to skirt U.S. laws demanding public access to their meetings.
